today show. george says she's continuing the bush family tradition with warm relations with the media. our other daughter has founded a non-profit called global health corp. it's placing garage watts in the health field. she has 90 fellows in her group of fellows in new wark boston and washington d.c. and five countries in africa. if you know any young people who are interested they can look on the web. she's doing just great. they both are. and the bushes, president george h.w. bush and bash ra are in houston. they spend the summer in main. president bush turned 88 last summer and they are doing great. when he turned 85 t milestone year of 85 he celebrated with his traditional sky diving jump out of an airplane. it happens at the largest he jumped into is a church yard. my mother-in-law joked that was convenient. if anything went wrong we could wheel him straight on into the church. but he's doing very well. they're both doing really great and we treasure our time with them. general na is going every month to get video footage of her grandparents and telling stories and she wants to
1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the reco
voting for republican bienick george herbert walker bush. why? guest: the democrats have been able to win suburban voters. , at a philadelphia with a huge edge -- the largest municipality in the state, a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia and the suburbs, the four counties in lehigh valley -- out of the southeast by 650,000 votes, is pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the state, even if the republicans win that infamous t that we often refer to. the other point to remember about pennsylvania is that is dominated for the most part by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia covers 40% of the voters of the state. all of delaware, which for our conversation is important, and the southern half of new jersey. in order to probably be effective in the television advertising business, a campaign -- you have to really advertise in philadelphia television market, which goes back to the lehigh valley, way out into the western, moving closer to such scope -- the susquehanna river. in lancaster county, you can get phila
: good morning. i'm sure they will be blaming this on george bush. next week the liberal media will be comparing the great job obama did compared to what bush did in katrina. and i hope he does a better job than he did protecting our people in benghazi. i was a former combat marine and i'm disgusted about the way he hand that would thing in benghazi. thank you. host: caller jon in north carolina comments on the same lines as you. he writes benghazi is the storm that sealed the election. here is what the romney campaign is doing as they look at this storm. it says one of his senior advisors said despite impended wall to wall coverage on sandy he feels voters in the region have received enough information ahead of the election and reiterated the campaign's focus on the safety and well being for those in the storm's path. this is senior advice sor to the romney campaign. mat independent caller good morning caller: good morning. i was calling about president obama in regard to the hurricane. and i don't know people have short memories when florida got hit by a terrible storm and pr
to the george bush era, and i am not -- i was extremely pessimistic when george bush got re-elected. as a matter of fact, one of the headlines in the british press said how can america be so stupid? now, if mitt romney and paul ryan win the election, i think the headlines will be the same. host: anderson, let's get back to the economy. talk to me about signs that you see -- signs that make you optimistic in brooklyn. talk to me about the housing -- caller: well, as a matter of fact, i'm glad you mentioned brooklyn, because yesterday i was down at flatbush, atlantic avenue, and that, what do you call it, the barclays center, where the home of the brooklyn nets will be, there is a lot of economic activity. and this economic activity started with metrotech, which was on flatbush avenue, and it went on to and is spread ago cross downtown brooklyn. it's becoming to look like upper manhattan, midtown. and, you know, you see people's enthusiasm bringing these businesses in the area, and i work in manhattan, and you see, you know, you've seen a lot of hiring by big companies. you know, manhattan is a br
of president george w. bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days or weeks of the election, in 2000 there were reports of a dui arrest that he had in connecticut a couple decades before. in both cases, they didn't move many boats. the october surprise can completely alter a presidential contest, but italy has not done that that much. host: you noted the examples of george w. bush. we know as it is that an october surprise release ways voters. guest: last-minute things can sway voters. i cited examples in that article. not necessarily in the presidential race but let us look the other races right now. in india, the senate candidate murdoch looked like he was slightly above joe donnelly going into the final debate between the men last monday. in that debate he made some comments about rates that were taken -- vitter able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have dominated the states. the political space for the last couple days. and it has sunk mourdocks place. what we saw there was a real moment in which a last second declaration by a candid
in the tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is
that george bush was in office. they seemed to disregard everything that happened during that period it just never happened. it all began under the obama administration. it just astounds me how the whole platform is based on george bush's policies. this 12 million at job creation is, again, just the smoke and mirrors. they use this every time they run. bush said he would lower taxes, create jobs. the tea party said they were born to create jobs. it seems like the same rhetoric over and over again. guest: great question, doug. i was critical of the bush presidency. we funded things like no child left behind. we created prescription drug programs in the not pay for them. the american people held the republican party responsible for it and threw them out of office. they are focused on creating jobs, growing the economy, and not focusing on big spending programs we know the american people do not want. you have the commitment of republicans that are no. 1 jobs focus will be on the economy. host: a.j. spiker, the chair of the iowa republican party joining us this morning from des moines. we will
. in retrospect we can see both of them, george bush, the entire government structure lied to us and even joked about it with bush saying where are toes nuclear weapons -- those weapons. that was a national lie and crisis. that was an enormous lie that cost this nation trillions of dollars and huge numbers of human life in iraq and ours. that is the first lie. we look at katrina right down here on the gulf coast. we see the government going in wasting money exaggerating police executing people on bridges in new orleans. absolute overstretch. i would turn also to questioning do we trust c-span. has anybody looked at the board of directors of c-span? take the time to look at them. these are all c.e.o.'s of enormous powerful wealthy corporationless. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no.ess. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is nss. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no.. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no. government.l of host: why do you say it is a tool of government? >> everybody says god bless c-span. i think
administrations. during the years of bill clinton, 23 million private- sector jobs were created. george bush's numbers in comparison were quite paltry. again on ben ghazi, i said before that i am not privileged to some of the information that i am sure our president and military leaders have right now i would put money on the fact that our last caller is not as well. i trust wholeheartedly the leadership of our president. he takes a backseat to no one when it comes to military issues or foreign policy issues. he has taken very bold steps when faced with threats from other nations or from terrorists. a leading example, of course, is taking out osama bin laden the first moment he had an opportunity to do so. host: this is a tweet from one our viewers, who says much obama disenchantment is due to 2008 voters as attributing medical traits to the candidates. their fault, not his. let's go back to anthony in garland, independent caller. caller: all i am trying to find out is why -- my name is anthony. i'm a first-time caller. i have a comment and then a question. my first comment is why democrats
on the presidential election. caller: george w. bush -- i worked with him from 2000 to to 2005. i changed to be an independent. and then i changed. but now obama -- he has too many good things going for him. he made some serious mistakes. but he has too many good things going for him. i will vote for him. if i can vote. our elections in this building, there's no electricity. if i can, i will vote for obama. host: james from new jersey. i want to bring in another new jersey congressman, congressman,. . our last caller brought up a concern about voting on tuesday. well but be a problem? guest: it may be a problem in the sense of people being able to access a polling place. now, every authority whether it is the governor or the county clerk's -- they assured us that there will be places to vote. but if we have places to vote that are significantly distant from where people traditionally do vote, or where there is an access problem -- that does pose a problem. we have to make sure that there is a polling place that is operational, and in a reasonable location for people to vote. you cannot te
, you go back to george w. bush and it wasn't policies he put forward. it was the congress. the congress has put forward a number of policies. in fact, the house of representatives has passed no taxpayer funding of abortion measure. it's died in the senate. i think if we see a change in the senate we have folks like todd akin and richard murdock elected it will pass the senate and go to mitt romney and i fully expect that he would sign a measure that would lannd on his desked. in many ways the president is more of the cheerleader for the country and helps facilitate these measures that come up through the people's representatives in congress in particular the house of representatives. and i think that's the way it should be. so i'm not necessarily looking for mitt romney as president to go into advance a set of policies. we have these policies coming up. they're being blocked in the senate by senator reid. but now if we see a change in the senate they will get to the white house and the president and i fully expect that mitt romney as president will support a number of measures including
